Smithsonian Institution

Smithsonian Institute Building – Washington DC

Design: Foster + Partners ; Co-architects: Smith Group Inc.

Now designated as a National Historic Landmark, the former United States Patent Building building was rescued from impending demolition in 1958 by President Eisenhower, who transferred it to the Smithsonian Institution for use as the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The enclosure of the building’s grand central courtyard was prompted by a desire to transform the public’s experience of the Smithsonian’s galleries and provide the Institution with one of the largest spaces in the state.
